insert pdf opens outside FileMaker

I've inherited a database with a problem I haven't seen before.

 

FileMaker 12 on Windows 7.

 

User right clicks on a container field and chooses, Insert File. User navigates to a PDF and selects it. PDF opens - in Adobe Reader, outside of FileMaker. What is causing this? What can be done to stop this?

 

I have tried all variations of the settings in the inspector but none have stopped this behaviorr of the pdf automatically opening outside of FileMaker.

 

Thank you.
